I have a bit of randomness going through my brain today so I decided to just do a weird blog post of those thoughts. Random and jumbled- my specialty!
::Am I the only person who can't wait for the election to be over? I am all about going and voting and such but I get so tired of the bickering and the TV ads constantly ripping the opponent apart. Ack! What irritates me most is that they pick a small section of wording and use a sentence fragment in an attempt to make you believe a lie. I know it's part of politics but I dread it!
::I made tomato soup again yesterday. I ended up with 29 more jars. Madilynne is thrilled with our supply. Actually, I will say that we are all happy that the shelves are filling up. I am thinking that I will attempt to make a V-8 type drink next. I am not sure how this idea will turn out. I need to look into a recipe for that.
::I need to make grape juice. Our grapes are finally ready to harvest. I may make some today actually....well, after I clean my messy house....keeping it real for ya! :-)
::I am enjoying the cooler evenings. We have pulled out the long sleeved shirts/flannels. Jeremiah is itching to build a nice big campfire! We haven't had many campfires this year but only because we have been pretty busy. We need to slow down and enjoy our time together.
::I have been focusing my time on being at home lately. I still run Madi and Ryder to work. Madi is working 3-4 days a week at a local discount store. She is still really liking it. She runs the register, stocks shelves and does some cleaning. Ryder has several mowing jobs that keep him busy along with odd jobs when someone needs a helping hand. He is gearing up for archery season because deer season is coming soon.
::I am so glad we homeschool. The kids are really gaining a lot of life experience and are able to keep up with their school work. They are learning how to handle money and make decisions on how to spend it wisely, save and tithe. Our hope is to educate our children to be wise adults and not so much about being "smart kids" on paper. Let me clarify that there is nothing wrong with smart kids but they need to know how to use those "smarts" in real life situations or it isn't going to help them when they leave home. If you have an interest in home schooling, I would definitely encourage you to pursue it. It has been wonderful for us.
::Our chickens have been giving us many eggs! I have been using them up quickly and even have a few people willing to buy them from us. It isn't going to make us rich but it pays for the chicken feed! :-)
::I have been eating way too many bologna and cheese sandwiches lately! I am not even sure why... yesterday I ate two, two people! I don't even know if its real meat but it tastes-so-good!
Well, I think that I will wrap this up. I have much to do today. And maybe I need to make a sandwich....
